Overall, tho, great, great night! I've been absent from The Brew scene for the last 3 or 4 months and I gotta tell you, their improvement over that amount of time was definitely noticeable to me last night.
First of all, there were a lot more segues last night, more than I'm used to anyway, and that always makes me smile. I just love it when they either work their way into, or just drop right into another song. Keeping the flow going and staying with the beat always keeps the energy high.
Secondly, song selection... They seem to have played their newest songs enough to work out all the kinks and now they aren't so prominent in the setlist. That being said, I think the more polished version of Sad But True last night really stands up and grabs your attention. And even more so now with songs like No Rest and No Future, which have really stepped up and become Brew Heavy Hitters. Then you round all of that out with them dropping a Light From Below, Ride the Valkyrie, and Groovin High in your face and you have a really well-rounded setlist! "We're mixing and melting the new with the old!"
Lastly, I'd just like to point out that the covers they're doing these day are really fucking cool. I was amazed last night by Young Lust, I thought they really nailed it. I love Floyd and I thought The Brew definitely invoked the spirit of Floyd last night. Have a Cigar, in the second set, was just really well positioned and really helped focus the energy early on in the set. As if that weren't heavy enough, the No Quarter>Radio Swiss>No Quarter definitely put it over the top. No Quarter was beautifully played and sang, a fitting tribute to Zeppelin.
Overall, last night, i felt the music was executed very well, the energy was always high and the special sit-ins by Seth Campbell, and Timmy Philips (timMAY) added a unique touch to a show that was very well crafted... right down to the rock 'n' roll outfits they were sporting last night (Thanks Ashley!)
It's been a little while since I've seen these guys and they've definitely raised the bar. Great show last night, lots of fun!
